Nestled amidst the serene beauty of the Big Hole River, this enchanting retreat property, located mere steps away from the riverbanks, presents an unparalleled opportunity for the avid angler seeking a sanctuary of tranquility and world-class fly fishing. Those desiring to enjoy time in the great outdoors will appreciate this location for the abundant recreational opportunities right from the front door. From hunting big game such as elk and deer to hiking in the surrounding National Forest Lands, camping at one of many area mountain lakes, snowmobiling in the winter months, and, of course, casting along the serene waters of the Big Hole River, this location is prime for an outdoor recreationist looking to enjoy the beauty of western Montana.

This special retreat property features a well-maintained yet modest home, serving as a cozy retreat for the current owners for many years. While providing a comfortable accommodation immediately for a new owner to enjoy the property and area, the property invites the possibility of crafting your own dream cabin on the additional parcel of land adjacent to the existing home and included in this offering. Alternatively, a new owner may wish to utilize the vacant parcel to construct a garage or shop with living quarters to store drift boats and fishing gear, serve as a guest residence for visiting family and friends, and complement the existing structure. The options are limited only by the imagination, and this riverside haven is waiting for a new owner to make cherished memories alongside a beautiful stretch of the Big Hole River, a short drive to the quaint cowboy town of Melrose and on to Butte or Dillon for shopping and all major services.
